About this Cook
Will be married 50 years in Nov.(2008). We have 3 boys, all married, 4 grandkids, 3 boys, 1 girl. My Mom worked at a time when most stayed home so I learned at an early age how to put a good meal on the table. I learned a lot from my grandmother, no recipes, just put it together and make it taste good. We never measured.
My favorite things to cook
Chicken Pot Pie. Not the kind with a crust but the PA Dutch kind with the slippy noodles. It makes a lot so my kids come for a couple of quarts for 'take-out'!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Getting together for pot luck picnics.
My cooking triumphs
Learning to decorate cakes. They're so expensive at the supermarket or bakery there's no money left for the present!!
My cooking tragedies
I once made a beautiful plate of deviled eggs. Many, many eggs! As an accent I usually dust the tops lightly with paprika. Never cook in a hurry, I grabbed the chili pepper instead. The eggs were eaten, but WOW was everyone surprised!

Made this in the microwave. Used 7 C. sliced apples which I dipped in a Fruit Fresh solution and quickly drained, this means I skipped the added water also. Left out the spice, we sprinkle that in when we serve it. 7 C. apples produced a scant 2 1/2 C. sauce. Used an old fashioned potato smasher and left it lumpy. Hubby says it's better than store bought!

Simple Waldorf Salad
Loved this. Plumped the raisins in some screamin hot water while I prepped the rest of ingredients. Used an extra apple, leaving some bright red skin for color and added one more stalk of celery. When serving, I added a few grinds of fresh cinnamon just because I wanted to :) Delish!

Lasagna Helper
I give this 5 stars for ease of preparation. It sounds really tasty. I'll try it but make this change. The beef cubes are usually really salty....I recommend substituting beef broth.
